Hip Miami Beach refuge with 1950s-inspired flourishes, an alfresco spa, and two sceney pools
Lady Gaga put this refurbished tower on the map when she snapped a photo sprawled along one of its candy-striped beach loungers in 2017. In many ways, that claim to fame, which is equal parts retro glam and millennial cool, is an apt metaphor for what this playful property (formerly a Thompson hotel) stands for. Part of the Hyatt’s eclectic Unbound Collection, the kitschy-chic sleep, replete with playful patterns and a sun-and-surf inspired color palette, pays homage to the city’s signature Art Deco roots—without fixating on them. Tropical upholstery and geometrically patterned carpets infuse guest rooms with instant warmth; the penthouse suite, which can sleep up to six guests, is splattered in crimsons and marigolds, with a separate living and dining area. Sample chef Richard Hales’s award-winning Nashville Hot Fried Chicken at the patio-clad Bird & Bone or guava and cheese pastelitos at neighboring Cafecito. Don’t want to leave your perch on the sand to nosh? There’s good news: the hotel’s private beach offers full food and beverage service.
In the Area
The Confidante is nestled along Mid-Beach, a relatively restrained corridor between Miami’s 24th and 44th streets. Your quiet surroundings mean area attractions are all short drives away. For a look at one of the city’s most stylish pockets, the Design District, chock full of art galleries and high-end shopping, take a free walking tour (offered on the third Wednesday of every month). The hotel is also a 20-minute drive from the up-and-coming Wynwood Walls project, an ambitious endeavor that converted old area warehouses into canvases for international street artists. For a second helping of culture, make your way to Little Havana (about a 25-minute drive away) for authentic Cuban eats at mainstays like El Pub and Versailles.
How to Get There
Thank you to evensky and dwayne for setting us up at the beach and Nikola Chris Holder and Anderson for amazing service with food and beverage and always checking up on us to make everything was good!!
Amazing team at the beach Evensky and Dwayne for setting up our family at the front of the beach in the cabana and Nikola Chris Holder and Anderson for great service and bringing us our food and drinks and making sure we where doing great
The hotel/room itself were not bad for the price paid. However everything looks a little bit dated, damaged and I am not referring to the Art Deco style of the hotel, of course. That part was actually pretty cool. Customer service was a disappointment since arrival. Room wasn't ready at check-in time (4pm) so I was told I would receive a text when ready. I never received the text and just sat there and waited. Valet parking is absolutely the worst of all. The attendants keep their conversation going while you wait. They don't make eye contact once you are standing at the door. There is no rush to pick up your car, no running, no one to open the passenger door. Two out of the three nights we had to wait 5 - 8 min with the tail of the car out on the road because there was no space on the driveway and they will just continue to talk. Absolutely regret having to use it and pay it at $45 per day plus tips. There was really not too many other choices. Water in the room for Hyatt members? Only the first day. The rest I had to request it from housekeeping and she would bring just one. Overall, a just OK place. Not sure if I will return.
We recently visited The Confidante at Miami Beach as a family of four and were left somewhat disappointed.
- Clean and comfortable rooms
- Great location with close proximity to free trolley bus stops
- Direct access to Miami Beach and Boardwalk
- Free water (and coffee 6-10:30am)
- Staff are very welcoming and helpful
- Loud, intrusive pool and backyard music from 11am, live music on Fridays and DJs on Saturday/Sunday - none of which are highlighted on the hotel website
- Beach is quieter but you have to pay an additional $22 for an umbrella despite already paying a resort fee
- You are only allocated 2 sun beds and 2 beach towels per room even if it occupies 4 people!
- Hotel restaurant is severely overpriced - visit the nearby The Tavern and Primo Cafe & Market instead
Always have the best time when I come to Confidante. Amazing service, great vibes and the great food. The location is perfect for easy transportation between north and south beach. Will definitely be back!
